We had two rooms as we were staying for a couple of nights to go to a music festival in the town. Our room was spacious and lonely and clean although the decor was a bit tired the bathroom looked as though it had just been refurbished. My sons bedroom was smaller but had a modern scheme he did not...

This is a wonderful B&B run by Christine and Ken who obviously work hard at getting things just right to make sure that their guests have an enjoyable and memorable stay. Everything from the warm hospitality to the cleanliness of the establishment and the standard of the food is excellent. We had dinner on both nights of our stay and...

This bed and breakfast is one of the best I have stayed in recent times . Everything about this place has been done with the customer in mind. Room was excellent as was the food that was presented both at evening dinner (which was optional) and the breakfast the following morning. Both owners and staff were very pleasant and the...

This place is perfect, well thought out, welcoming for guests and I can not imagine not loving it. The honor bar in the guest parlor was ingenious! (such a great idea but we didn't encounter one anywhere else) The guest parlor itself was a great amenity. Beds great and our room which did not have a view, was still comfortable...

This B and B had everything you could wish for, except that it is not within easy walking distance of the town ( not their fault!) I have two odd criteria for B and B, Marmite on the breakfast table and a hook on the back of the bedroom door, both admirably fulfilled! The rooms were very warm , well...

Honesty bar a total bonus! The hospitality of Ken, Christine and the entire staff was just simply the best. Terrific breakfast including Ken's...

Beautiful, elegant house and rooms. Excellent en suite bathroom. The lovely lounge and honesty bar are a great asset. Very good breakfast - great selection to choose from and local kippers very tasty. Wish we could have stayed longer. Barney Border Collie made very welcome too. Highly recommended.

This was our third trip here and everything is consistently good, a very friendly welcome, fabulous accommodation with clean and luxurious bed and bathroom, great breakfast selection and quality, convenient parking, not far from St. Andrews for golfers. All in all FIRST CLASS.

Only stayed for one cool windy night, lots of character in the wood panelled Captain's room. Not a huge room but very comfortable, if you don't mind 3 flights of stairs it's worth it for the unique experience. Breakfast selection and quality was very good. With 8 rooms it's larger than the average BnB, but breakfast service was very good.

Made the mistake of only booking one night at The Spindrift at the end of a touring holiday of the Highlands. It really is a welcoming and friendly place and we would have liked to have spent more time there. Our room was well appointed, the bed very comforable, and we enjoyed a pleasant view across the fields from our...
